Rock Sich 2013. How the festival was held, photo report

On June 8-9, 2013, a rock festival called "Rock Sich" was held in Kiev. A lot of Kievans came to this event. Still, because absolutely free of charge performed a bunch of famous Ukrainian and even foreign groups.

Where was Rok Sich 2013

Where and usually in recent times, on Trukhanov Island. On the map, you can see the exact place of the festival:

But, perhaps, in the next 2014, it will be postponed to another. Therefore, the exact place of the festival is better to specify on the official website of Rock Sichi:

The program of the festival Rock Sich 2013

It was truly intense. On the official website, the program could be viewed in the "Line UP" section. There were a lot of groups. In addition to performances on the territory of the festival, it was possible to learn dance, watch motorcycles and do other interesting things.

But as practice has shown, most people came just to listen to music and drink beer.

There were as many as 2 scenes that worked at the same time. That is, if you did not like one group, you could go to another stage and listen to another group. The main stage was on the water and it was called Barge. That's where all the major bands performed.

And here is a copied program of the festival. By the way, we must give credit, everything was clearly on schedule:

Food and beer at the Rock Sich Festival 2013

Of course all this could be bought at the festival, the question is the price :-). So, beer cost 15 UAH per glass, hot dog 25 UAH per glass. It's kind of not very cheap, but at the same time not super expensive. In addition, you could carry everything with you in a closed bag or bag or backpack.

That is, on the approach to the festival, there was a police who wrapped everyone up with open beer and drinks. But if it's the same beer in a black bag, then you could pass without problems. That is, in order not to spend money on the fest, you could take everything with you.

Impressions and photo report Rock Sich 2013

There were a lot of people at the festival. Basically, everyone came from the side of The Post Square, where the repairs are. You cross the footbridge and you are there:

There was a lot of debris on the footbridge. It's just that many people drank beer in front of the police at the entrance. But all the garbage was removed the next day:

The second day of the Rock Sich Festival 2013

In general, everything is the same as on the first day, only we came a little earlier and… there were a lot fewer people at 3 p.m. than at 6 p.m.! Tartak spoke:

Dance scene:

There was a closed area for motorcycles from Harley Davidson Ukraine. In harley's salon in Kiev, it was possible to get an invitation for free. And so the entrance cost 100 for cooperage.

Actually on the Harley court it was possible to participate in a wet T-shirt contest and ride an electronic bull:

Conclusions on Rock Sichi 2013

In general, I liked the festival. The bands performed great and the sound was good. I mean, for free it's all very cool. It was possible to have a great rest this weekend in Kiev.

Some might say the beer was expensive and the toilets stinked. But there's nothing you can do about it. You could take alcohol with you, and go to the toilet somewhere in the bushes. Fortunately, Trukhanov Island is not a small territory.

So everything was great!
